It’s summer which means those peep toed shoes and sandals can be brought down from the attic. And with exposing your feet, most people will start wearing nail polish on their toes. I tend to wear nail polish year round because my feet are out a bit more and I just like the overall look of my feet when I have polished toe nails. So I go through my fair share of toe nail colors throughout the year. These are my 5 favorite toe nail colors.
1. Bourjois So Lacque Bleu Mysterieux
This isn’t a very summery color, but still one of my favorites to put on my toes. The color looks very black in the bottle, but it’s more of a bright navy blue once you put it on your nails. The So Laque line goes on opaque in almost one coat, which for toes, I find a big plus. I love wearing this in winter and for some reason I like wearing blues (and greens) on my toe nails mostly.
2. Catrice Virgin Forest (Coolibri LE)
My favorite summer toe nail color is this bright green with a slight shimmer which dries to an almost matte finish. It sets off really nicely against my pale skin and it also shows up in peep toe flats. It goes with both tan and black shoes and hence it is superversatile. It is also quite long wearing and the color is just so much fun. I’m just so bummed that this was a LE color. I haven’t seen anything similar anywhere else.
3. Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear 470 Kiwi Bikini
Another summerproof color is a nail polish that I bought from budget store Action. It is a very blue toned green which leans very turquoise, but isn’t quite a turquoise. It’s a fully cream color and this also needs roughly one coat to completely cover your toes in this fun bright color. I do feel that it’s a bit muted and against my light skin it doesn’t pop as much as the bright green above, but it still makes for a great color.
4. HEMA Long Lasting nail polish in 835
Like I said, apart from greens, I love me some blues on my toe nails. This bright, sky blue, color, with a hint of a purple undertone is so lovely on the toes. It breathes summer, no matter whether you it on your hands or on your feet. But I love this on my feet in particular, because, like the bright green, it goes with all shoes and gives a bright pop of color which is what I like best on my toes in summer.
5. Bourjois So Laque Rouge Escarpin
Last but not least, is another Bourjois So Laque color. This bright red is one of my most used toe nail colors and it was also one of my favorite creamy reds for wearing on my finger nails for the longest time. I don’t tend to wear a lot of red nail polish on my fingers anymore, but the more I stopped wearing it on my fingers, the more I started wearing it on my toes. Summer or winter, no matter the season, a good red is always a great toe nail look.
